This won’t be of much good to most, if not all, of our readers, but it’s interesting nonetheless. Over in Japan, Square Enix’s homeland, the publisher has put together a promotional event to build up a bit of hype (like it needs it…) for the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake which is releasing on PS4 this April.
Unfortunately, nobody will be going to the event as Square Enix has cancelled the event. The publisher explained via the official Final Fantasy VII Remake Twitter account that the event would not be going ahead due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
It’s a bummer, sure, and it’s not the first cancellation and it won’t be the last, but it’s disappointing all the same. Earlier today, Sony announced that it is pulling out of PAX EAST 2020 due to concerns about the coronavirus outbreak. Fingers crossed this horrible illness can be sorted out soon; I’m sick of writing about it here, on a gaming website.
